Understand Juvenile Law
Not all cases involving a minor are sent to juvenile court. In some instances, an officer will simply issue a warning and release the minor into a guardian’s custody. The following factors are consider when determining whether or not a case should go to juvenile court:
- How severe the offense was.
- If the offender has a past history of juvenile delinquency.
- How much evidence there is that the juvenile truly broke the law.
- The age and gender of the minor.
- The minor’s social history.
Should the case go to juvenile court, the minor will be formally arraigned in front of a judge. Afterwards, the minor may enter a plea deal, the judge may divert the case (which would likely result in the minor having to complete a recommended program), or the case will go to trial. Conviction at the trial may result in a number of different consequences, including counseling, probation, or time spent in a juvenile detention facility.
